What’s Next?

This site has evolved into my personal and professional website. As a photographer for 10 years that has recently closed my business, I can say that while it was a good run, I don’t see photography as my future career. I enjoy being home with my children, but being closed now for almost 6 months, I’m really enjoying the time at home and it’s given me the opportunity to explore so many other creative outlets that I never had time for.

On top of that, Declan was born and if you haven’t read his story, you can read it by clicking here, so while this site is dedicated to me as an artist, it’s also dedicated to telling his story.

Without further ado, here’s what’s going on in my home studio.

Bullet Journal

I've been keeping a bullet journal to keep me accountable to creating regularly. It sucks getting lost in the busy of day to day and realize your soul is drained because you haven't filled it with what you love.

Stickers

Creating stickers for my bullet journal as well as many other uses has been awesome. I'm continuing to explore the design process and have made my stickers available in my shop.

Custom Envelopes

I've been experimenting with custom envelopes for both sending in the mail and for use in bullet journaling. I have both mini and A2 sized. The minis are perfect to put in my kids' lunches!

Handlettering

Over the last 6 months or so, I've learned how to handletter. I've continued to explore that and love using it on both my instagram and on my stickers.

Card Design

After everything went on with Declan, I decided to hand-make cards to send to everyone. I truly enjoyed the use of watercolor, stamping, and embossing during that process. I had done these things before, but putting it together for greeting cards has been very rewarding.
